Heart of Slough masterplan revealed

Slough’s uninspiring town centre, made famous in BBC2’s sitcom The Office, is to be overhauled under new £400 million plans revealed yesterday.

The long-awaited proposals for the Berkshire town, which have been nearly 10 years in the making, include a new ‘cultural hub’ designed by 3DReid, 34,000m2 of offices by Sheppard Robson and around 1,400 homes by RHWL.

The Heart of Slough masterplan revolves around the notoriously bland and soon-to-be reworked roundabout that features in the opening sequence of The Office, and will see the flattening of, among other things, the old Brunel Bus Station.
